"Kara is the only agent we'll work with. she's been a trusted friend & agent in our corner for years, and we wouldn't have it any other way, she handled the sale of this property beautifully, advised us on everything from timing to market comps to staging, hosted two gangbuster open houses, and got us well over asking. we're thrilled."
"Kara Handy was such a pleasure to work with! She was professional, efficient, hard working and answered all questions in a timely manner. She worked so hard to get us our house and was a pro in handling all aspects of our transactions, being on top of every detail. I can't say enough positive things about our experience with Kara, as well as her associate Deon Cavender and would HIGHLY recommend her to anyone looking to purchase or sell a home."

"I could not have been more happy with Kara's performance. Our situation was difficult due to our living on the East Coast. Kara was quick to notify us of any new listings, and knew if we had time to wait, or had to jump immediately. The time difference was no issue, Kara was always available, and responded / followed up very quickly. Even though we had serious time constraints Kara was not going to let us make a poor decision. She was always willing to tell us the truth, even if it isn't what we wanted to hear. I would definitely recommend Kara to anybody. "I could not have been more happy with Kara's performance.

"Kara Hany is an amazing Agent! We met her about 10 years ago when we purchased a home in the Toluca Lake area. She was the agent selling the property we wanted to purchase and we where so impressed with her! From that point on, we only use Kara for all of our real estate needs."

Her experience and sage advice help you anticipate issues and be prepared with solutions. We have worked together on several buy and sell events...she is consistently exceptional and supportive."

Due to my work schedule and a previous commitment, Deon worked with me on my schedule and my terms. She met my needs with her schedule and provided in-depth knowledge and expertise throughout the transaction. No question was too small, no issue too difficult. Regardless of the hour, she made herself available. She approached each new house opportunity with an open mind and critical feedback, with a keen eye on satisfying me as her client."

"Mark Chitjian is amazing. He was so thorough and dedicated to my quest to purchase a property that I felt as though I was his one and only client. I cannot say enough about his knowledge of the market and attentiveness to me and my purchase. He should be getting awards for his talents and dedication to his profession."
- Amy Hakim
"He is amazing! I am blessed to have met him and having him represent me. Very professional and kind. I was introduced to DocuSign with the sale of my house. I found using it a learning curve, but beneficial in the quick exchange of signatures with ease. Mark's "support" group was excellent!
Mark found me my "dream house" because he listened to my needs and responded accordingly.
I am blessed! Thank you, Mark!"
- Josh Brown
"Mark was an excellent agent for my purchase. He was very responsive and helpful with the entire transaction. He was ethical and trustworthy. I am so happy that Mark answered my call from a yard sign that I responded to. I would certainly work with Mark again and I have referred Mark to friends shopping here in the Palm Springs area. Mark did a fantastic job for me.
I am very grateful to have met Mark and used him as my agent. He has strong skills and knowledge and did an excellent job representing me, the buyer. "

“Don is extremely knowledgeable in all facets of construction and bridge lending. I worked
with Don for over ten years in the real department of a major regional bank in California.
As chief real estate credit officer Don was always thoughtful and solution minded in
finding ways to get deals to the finish line. I know he will bring the same energy and
enthusiasm to helping his clients accomplish their objectives."

“Don Hinton and I worked together in construction lending and commercial real estate finance
starting in the late 1990s. The bank we were at back then had several lenders, but Don's knowledge of real estate and his expertise in structuring construction and CRE loans made his deals move quickly through the bank's approval processes. He took care of his clients, originated good loans for the bank and is a great golf partner!”
- James Barnett
“I have known Don Hinton for many years. I first met him when I sold a $10.1MM shopping center to one of my clients. My client needed a loan for an intense and complicated deal, and Don came to the rescue. Don was very professional, knowledgeable, prompt, and all around a pleasure to work with. Don made sure the deal went through smoothly and without any hiccups. To work with Don, is to have a very positive experience. Thank you Don, for all your help!”
